Kush Sake Bar

Los Angeles


Specializing in <em>kushi </em>(the Japanese version of a kebab, with grilled and skewered meat), this bright, minimalist eatery in Echo Park serves small plates alongside sake and a curated beer and wine list from regional producers. Happy hour attracts the masses with its affordable marinated pork buns with sesame mayo and $1 oysters, but it's a solid late-night option as well, with groups of friends rolling through to feast on bowls of tonkotsu ramen, salmon and yellowtail carpaccio, shishito peppers, and more. Don't worry: there's valet parking.
